Colorado law mandates that public universities require standardized tests as part of the admission process. We are working closely with Colorado officials to reassess the role of testing in the admission process due to test cancellations.

No matter what, we still review all applications individually. A wide range of factors are considered, and we are reviewing our policies related to how much weight we give standardized testing in our decisions. We also are working to expand the list of assessments we will consider.

The housing application for the fall 2021 semester will open January 25, 2021.

In cases where Satisfactory or Pass grades from the Spring 2020 semester prevent a student from satisfying the course grade requirements for a competitive major, we will conduct an individual review to determine direct admission to a competitive major.

We will conduct an individual review to award scholarships in cases where Satisfactory or Pass grades from the Spring 2020 semester prevent a student from demonstrating the 30 credit and 3.0 GPA minimum for scholarship consideration.
